Successful Charter School Day at the Capitol

CCSA celebrated National Charter Schools Week and hosted their Annual Advocacy Day in Sacramento on Tuesday May 5, 2015. Over 500 charter school leaders, parents, teachers and students flooded the State Capitol, making this the largest Advocacy Day to date!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

"The Man in The Arena" Speech at the Sorbonne Paris, France April 23, 1910

CVCHS was represented on Advocacy Day at the Capitol! This famous quote was shared with the 500 member audience to continue to "fight the good fight" to encourage our work in charter schools. I had the privilege to attend along with some of our staff and parents on Advocacy Day. We were afforded the opportunity to meet with staff from Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla's office to share our story of CVCHS to influence upcoming legislative bills impacting charter schools. We were energized and inspired to renew our commitment to the advocacy of a high-quality education for all students.

We are reminded to recommit to provide the best education possible to our deserving children and to provide every student with the chance to reach their fullest potential. I invite you to join me in our mission of academic excellence. I am dedicated to set our students on a path to success... one that "expands horizons, challenges minds, and a new generation of thinkers, doers, and dreamers" as so eloquently stated by President Obama. In honor of National Charter Schools Week, I want to thank all of our stakeholders, teachers, administrators, staff members, parents, students, and our community and civic leaders for your continued devotion and endless support for Clayton Valley Charter High School.

In Your Service, David Linzey

Presidential Proclamation -- National Charter Schools Week, 2015 NATIONAL CHARTER SCHOOLS WEEK, 2015

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION

In today's global economy, a high-quality education is one of the best investments we can make in a child's future, and it is central to the promise that in America, where you start should not determine how far you can go. No matter who they are or where they come from, all children deserve the best education possible. During National Charter Schools Week, we recognize the role public charter schools play in providing America's daughters and sons with a chance to reach their fullest potential, and we recommit to strengthening our Nation's classrooms for all.

Innovation and experimentation are essential to bolstering our education system for the 21st century. As independent public schools, charter schools are able to try new models of learning and methods that encourage academic excellence and set students on a path to success. They are laboratories of learning and incubators for the ideas of tomorrow, but this flexibility comes with high standards and accountability. When a charter school does not measure up -- when one is underperforming and not improving -- we must make the tough decision to shut it down. But when charter schools are successful, they can help spur systemic reform, and their approaches can be replicated in classrooms across America. Today, especially in some of our Nation's most disadvantaged communities, successful charter schools are an important partner in increasing access to a high-quality education and closing the achievement gap.

I am dedicated to providing every child access to a complete and competitive education, and harnessing the power of American ingenuity has been vital to this commitment. My Administration has challenged States to raise education standards, improve teacher effectiveness, and adopt new strategies to help struggling schools. As part of this unprecedented effort, we have expanded support for high-performing public charter schools and given States the opportunity to embrace new ideas that improve all our Nation's classrooms. Our comprehensive approach to education reform has demonstrated that innovation yields results that benefit all students, that progress is possible, and that a world-class education can be within reach for all our young

people. As President, I will continue to build on this success and work to ensure all children receive an education worthy of their potential.

Today, our Nation's very best charter schools are gateways to higher education and endless possibilities, lifting up students of all backgrounds and empowering them to achieve a brighter future. This week, we honor the parents, educators, and civic leaders who make the vision of charter schools a reality, and we continue our work to safeguard the promise that an education -- one that expands horizons, challenges minds, and inspires a new generation of thinkers, doers, and dreamers -- is within the reach of every girl and boy.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 3 through May 9, 2015, as National Charter Schools Week. I commend our Nation's charter schools, teachers, and administrators, and I call on States and communities to support high quality public schools, including charter schools, and the students they serve.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.

Attendance
and ADA

School funding comes directly from student's daily attendance.  When they attend school, even for a portion of the day, we receive full funding for that day.  When your student does not attend at all, we receive no funding at all.  Since 2007, California funding for public education (which includes charter schools) has been reduced significantly causing a tremendous strain on schools to offer educational programs.  We need each student here everyday, even if it is only for a part of the day (after doctor's and dentist appointments, etc.).  CVCHS can actually increase our state funding if every parent does their best to get their students to school everyday.  Thanks!
